Cloud Native Telecom Initiative

LF Networking’s new Cloud Native Telecom Initiative (CNTI) brings telco networking and cloud native thought leaders together to advance cloud native networking confidence and adoption.

Let's Work Together

The CNTI is aimed at accelerating the adoption of Cloud Native technology for networking (as expressed in documents such as the recent NGMN Cloud Native Manifesto) to meet the needs of both vendors and service providers while avoiding fragmentation and creating a unified conformance program. It will start by building on the work of the existing CNCF CNF Certification, CNF Test Suite, and LF Networking’s Anuket Project.

The Cloud Native Telecom Initiative will focus on 3 key areas:

Best Practices

Developing cloud native and Kubernetes-native best practices for networking.

Test Catalog

Creation of a robust testing framework and infrastructure, including functional, non-functional, and end-to-end tests.

Cloud Native Certification

Building on the foundations of LFN and CNCF certification programs and extending to address the needs of modern Cloud Native Network Functions.

If you are interested in participating and advancing this initiative, please consider engaging in one or more of our focus areas. See details at: LF Networking Wiki | Cloud Native Telecom Initiative (CNTI).
